Villanova still on top of college basketball world

Talk about the 'Cats' meow.

Villanova is looking down at the rest of the NCAA field, but there's a landmine out there waiting for the Wildcats.

The defending national champions from the Main Line are not only the No. 1 seed in the East as expected, they are the No. 1 seed in the entire tournament.

They will play the winner of the play-in game between Mount St. Mary and New Orleans for that No. 16 seed in the East.

Perhaps fitting, the game will be played in Buffalo. We're about to have some serious Buffalo weather here, with heavy snow expected to arrive late tonight and through Tuesday morning.

But for now, Jay Wright's team is on top of the college basketball world.

But there is a very familiar name lurking in the East Region.

The Wildcats could easily be looking at an Elite Eight matchup vs. Duke.

But that's getting ahead of ourselves.

For now, tiny Villanova is the cream of college basketball, just as they were last spring when that magical shot from Kris Jenkins after the perfect feed from Ryan Arcidiacano found the bottom of the net.

Let the madness begin.
